Africa Day 2023
An annual celebration of the people and cultures of this wonderful continent.
Africa Day is an annual celebration of the people and cultures of this wonderful continent.
Marked each year on 25 May, Africa Day celebrates the vibrancy, diversity and potential of Africa. In Ireland it is an opportunity to recognise the growing cultural, trade and political links we have with countries right across Africa.
The Department of Foreign Affairs organises a programme of events each year to mark Africa Day.
2022 saw the largest ever Africa Day celebrations in Ireland, with 30 local authorities around the country hosting events in their communities.
Plans are underway for Africa Day 2023, which promises to be the best yet. Events will take place nationwide, with a special event planned for Dublin city centre.
The full programme of events will be announced in early May. Stay tuned!
